  • Group 3 - expert level and adult riders (remains Wednesdays from 7:00 - 8:00)
We will determine the groups at the next Wednesday night coaching session. Do not come on Monday unless you have been instructed to.

The time from 7:00 - 8:00 on Mondays will be gate practice for all levels.

Opening Weekend

Opening weekend is around the corner, it all begins May 2nd. For those that want to help with pre-season set-up we are having a work bee on April 25 and 26 starting at 10:00am both days. There will be no riding on that weekend as there will be heavy equipment in use on the track. If you are a returning member make sure to get your membership and license. Go here to sign up online.

If you race in a higher class (e.g. you're a 10 Novice and you have to race with 10 Experts) due to lack of riders in your own class, you will be awarded points from your registered class. For example you are the only 10 Novice and you race 10 Experts and place third. You get a third place award for that race and third place novice points towards your year-end club ranking

To move up from Novice to Intermediate for all BOY'S classes you need 10 first place finishes as a Novice in your BMX career. A first place finish is an overall finish for that particular race night/day and not simply just one race. If you have been racing for 4 years and finally got your 10th first place finish as a Novice, you will be responsible to move up to the Intermediate.

To move up from Intermediate to Expert for all BOY'S classes you need 20 first place finishes as an Intermediate in your BMX career. A first place finish is an overall finish for that particular race night/day and not simply just one race. If you have been racing for 4 years and finally got your 20th first place finish as an Intermediate, you will be responsible to move up to the Expert.

To move up from Novice to Expert for all GIRL'S classes you need 25 first place finishes as a Novice in your BMX career. A first place finish is an overall finish for that particular race night/day and not simply just one race. If you have been racing for 4 years and finally got your 25th first place finish as a Novice, you will be responsible to move up to the Expert. There is no Intermediate class for Girls.

History

Established in 1979, Lethbridge was one of the first BMX racing clubs in Canada. We are a non-profit society with a board of directors all on a volunteer basis. The club has had several temporary locations starting in the coulees, to the river-bottom, next to Marshalls Auto Wreckers, in what is now a parking lot to the north of the Ability Resource Centre, and finally to it's new permament home in 1986 where it remains to this day.
